MSE 7607 Emergent Literacy for Young Children

Children begin to learn language from the day they are born. Their speech and language skills become more complex as they grow and develop. This course will focus on how young children, birth to grade 2, learn to understand and use language to express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings, and to communicate with others. The course will also focus on early speech and language development, the skills that are important to the development of literacy (reading and writing), and the interaction with print that occurs in young children beginning at birth and continuing through the preschool years.
